How to be a group seneschal

Saturday 12:00 – 13:30 CET

The role of the Seneschal is one of the most important positions to hold in the SCA at any level, yet is often also the most misunderstood. Volunteers can be daunted by the idea of stepping forward and taking this office on, yet it is often one of the most effective positions for experience, change and development both of yourself and also your group.

Mistress Margaret is the incumbent Seneschal of the Kingdom of Drachenwald, and will be leading a panel that includes Dame Leonet de Covenham, Principality Seneschal of Insulae Draconis, and Lord Aymar Boisvert, Seneschal of the new Shire of Trivium.

Together, they will talk of their experiences and help demystify the role, as well as offer suggestions on preparing and planning your activities as a budding or experienced Seneschal alike.

We welcome questions prior to this panel, please email
